Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

I am driving our 2009 Toyota Camry hybrid which my husband and I purchased new. I was approaching the city of anacortes wa. I had been driving on sr 20 which goes from 55mph to 35 mph and from two lanes to one.I am approaching a light I have my foot on the brake when suddenly my car accelerated as if I had floored it, hitting a pickup truck in front of me. Upon impact it moved forward and then with my foot still on the brake I hit it again. I have no idea how fast I was going but for that brief time I felt as if I was in a rocket. I put the car in neutral and at this point regained control and was able to pull to side of road. No damage to the truck. My front bumper needs to be replaced as well as bent license plate. Air bag did not deploy. The car was put on a flatbed and brought back to our residence some 50 miles away. Neither of us are thrilled about getting behind the wheel of this car again and so it sits in our garage.our plans are to get rid of this car even though we loved it up until this point. My husband called the dealership yesterday ( 3/30/15) and they referred him to Toyota usa. He spoke with someone there and was given a case number he was told he would receive a call within twenty four hours. Well that came and went and when he called back today he was told the person who was handling this was gone for the day he was told she attempted to reach us twice. Strange she never left a message. We are at this time waiting for response.

My husband & I were involved in a collision with a deer on June 8, 2014, with our 2009 Camry hybrid. We were traveling about 70 mph on interstate 72 East around jacksonville, il. It was a front end collision as you will see in the pictures. Neither of us was injured; however, the air bags did not deploy. Had this been something stationary that we had the collision with we would have been injured. Can you tell me why this would happen? I am now very concerned for my safety in my car. - this is the second time I have reported this and have gotten no follow up.

2009 Toyota Camry hybrid dashboard melting in Florida sun. I am concerned that the airbags will not deploy properly due to defect. Contacted Toyota regarding defect and was told that they know about the problem and have fixed the problem, but owners like me are out of luck. The cost for new dashboard is $1,400. I asked if they were certain that it would not affect airbag deployment and was told there is no way to know for sure.
